Our staff is passionate about utilizing the most current physical therapy techniques to provide the best care for our clients. Our goal is to return them to their prior level of function or better following an injury, fall, or surgery. After a thorough initial evaluation your physical therapist will consider your past medical history and create a personalized treatment program. Treatment programs may include techniques such as therapeutic exercises, core strengthening, manual therapy, pain and swelling management, or neuromuscular re-education to improve your condition.
Therapists utilize a hands on approach when necessary to address muscle and other soft tissue pain, joint stiffness, posture and to optimize movement and function. Therapists may also use tools like MFD, STM, Joint Mob, IASTM, METs, SNAGs/NAGs, Manual stretching, PNF, Kinesiology taping.
